The Gujral Foundation has announced an iconic public art project— commissioning temporary pavilions by selected artists, architects and designers. For its inaugural edition, a stand-alone pleated pavilion titled ‘The Song of the Earth and the Sky’ will be erected at Sunder Nursery, New Delhi, which will be designed by architect and hexagram artist Ankon Mitra. He takes inspiration from the arcade of Sunderwala Mahal and responds to it using origami forms. He says, “This is an unprecedented opportunity.” The pavilion with the dimension of 4m X 14m X 4m will be constructed using mild steel arch frames, copper finish, pebbles, hand-folded sheet of aluminum, and LED lighting.

It will open for public viewing from 30 January to 30 March 2020.

Reha Sodhi has been appointed as the curatorial advisor for the project. She says, “The Gujral Foundation aims to provide a global platform for experimental projects by leading architects.”
